Walleyball Domination & A Sunny Speed Workout

Last night was a very important night here in Chapel Hill. It was the Walleyball intramural semi-finals. Whether we won would determine which championship game we dominated played in. The stakes were high. And we were prepared.


Above we are with our “coach”, Tyrone. Staring at something in the sky because it makes us look more hardcore.

We even had a cheering squad! I dragged Matt with me and Steph’s boyfriend Brian came, too :)


And then… would you believe the other team DIDN’T SHOW UP!?!?! We are pretty sure they must have heard about our epic performance last week and were too scared. ;) Either that, or, you know… they just didn’t care. Either way — we rule.



It actually ended up working out perfectly because we were allowed to just use the court for 45 minutes and play each other, instead! So it was the 3 boys against us 5 girls, ha. The boys may or may not have still beat us. It’s okay. We let them win. ;)

My other adventure yesterday (you know, in between those pesky classes and homework) was an afternoon run and speed workout with my friend Jillian!


It felt amaaaaaaaaaazing to be outside and running in the warm late afternoon sunshine instead of at 6 a.m. in the freezing cold like usual! But — we’ll be sticking with the mornings usually because a) it’s more productive to get a workout out of the way first thing, and b) apparently the men’s track team practices in the afternoon! Bust. So instead of doing our workout on the track, we were exiled to the soccer field next door :)


As usual, we ran 1.5 miles to and from Jill’s house to warm up/cool down. Once at the field, we set to work doing our sprints around it! It was a little shorter than the track (about 0.2 miles around once instead of 0.25), but whatev :) One of Jillian’s roommates, Evan (a UNC med student), joined us for the workout, too!


He’s running a half in April and trying to increase his speed/endurance. We were teasing him the whole time because he was having trouble keeping up with us :)

We did the same speed workout we’ve been doing — one super speedy lap (6:30ish pace) followed by one slow jog/recovery lap. Repeat, repeat, repeat! As usual, we did 6 speedy laps and 6 recovery laps, for a total of 12. All in all, between the warm up, cool down, and actual speed workout, we covered 5.5 miles yesterday! Sweet.

I’m off to school — I have a fun Attune Foods related giveaway coming up so stay tuned (a-ttuned? Ha… ha… ha?)! Also, for those of you on Twitter, today from 12 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. EST is our second monthly #attune chat! I’m co-hosting this month’s chat with fellow Attune Brand Ambassador Anne-Marie, and we would love if you could join us :) The topic? Discussing the phrase “What Matter’s Most is What’s Inside”!

  2. 2

    i’m printing and framing that first photo. EPIC. can’t wait for indoor soccer domination, next!

  3. 3

    I can’t believe the other team didn’t show up, how embarrassing for them but GREAT for you all. We girls are always letting our men win (hahaha)

  4. 4

    Every time I read you blog, I keep remembering that I need to e-mail someone in the UNC Nutrition Department to ask them a few questions! Haha!

    So, since the other team didn’t show up, does that mean you automatically go into the final championship game?

    Walleyball looks so fun!! Ahhh I have to try it! Slash send some sunshine over here por favor:)

  6. 7

    Of COURSE you let them win! ;) Walleyballs sounds like it’s a blast though — it’s that other team’s loss for not showing!

  7. 8

    hahahaha love the pictures!

  8. 9

    Well done on the workout, Anne. Great to see the speedwork continue — and without injuries. You’re doing it just right. Great work — but try to be less intimidating on teh walleyball court!

  9. 10

    The other team was scared….fo sho! Either that or they were confused regarding the time, but I stick with the first sentence.

  10. 11

    I love how silly your Wallyball pictures are.

  11. 12

    I think the other team must have been scared! At least you guys just got to have fun and still play :)
    Can I just say how jealous i am that you were outside in shorts and a t-shirt?! Looks so pretty!!!!! Enjoy the sun and nice weather!

  12. 14

    So jealous of your springy weather! It’s still 12 degrees over here and there’s at least 2 ft. of snow on the ground. Needless to say, I’m still running in running tights and big wool hats and gloves that are two sizes too big for me…haha.
